Ok guys, I'm working on a budget gaming pc build and am trying to figure out which case to purchase. Here are the three cheaper cases I'm looking at. Which one do you think is better?

Fractal Design Core Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Or

Nzxt case.

* The Fractal Case doesn't fit a full ATX mobo, so keep that in mind if your getting a full ATX mobo.
* The Nzxt cases are meh, IMHO.

Here is what I'd recommend for similar price:
$50 shipped - $5 Promo code (CollegeSave5) = $45!!! Nzxt's cases that were listed were $46 shipped
Comes with Front USB 3.0 ports!

A cheaper option until 10/8:

id get the antec one. the fractal core 1000 is great but if you need a full atx case, the core 1000 will limit you

Thanks for the replies. I'm using a micro atx mobo so I'm not worried about space..still trying to decide. I do want the psu mounted on bottom that's my only issue with the fractal

All of the cases I listed above have the PSU mounted at the bottom, so pick one with the features that you like. I personally like the front USB 3.0 ports on some of the ones listed (you will need either an adapter to USB 2.0 or plug the USB 3.0 connection right onto your onboard USB 3.0 plug in).
